    Concerns the Government's new health guidance for children, could impact employer attitudes towards parents

    Concerns the Government's new health guidance for children, could impact employer attitudes towards parents


    The guidelines says kids with a mild cough, headache or runny nose should go to school -- provided they don't have Covid-19 or other symptoms like a fever or vomiting.

    This move is in a effort to improve school attendance numbers.

    But NZEI President Mark Potter says parents may be pressured by their employers to go to work, despite their kids being unwell.

    He says there's a growing wave of mental health issues at play, which are often very difficult, and parents are struggling with how to help them.
